Deftly balanced between its layers of citrusy grapefruit, light caramel malt over a creamy body. Finishes with crisp, grassy hops and a touch of heat, but this is highly drinkable and refreshing for the abv.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
660ml served in a pint glass.
A: Pours a hazy orange color forming a medium soapy and molasses off white head with good retention and tons of lingering molasses lacings left in the glass. Looking closer, you can see tons of very thin particles suspended in the liquid.
S: Wonderful nose. Caramel, sweet malts and piny hops. Biscuity and fruity. Strong notes of grapefruit and orange zest. A bit boozy in the very end but definitely well hidden 9.5% ABV.
T: Slightly sweet upfront. Strong notes of caramel and crystal malts. Very piny hops profile. Great and very persistent hops bitterness. Again, great fruity notes: Grapefruit, orange and zest.
M: Heavy molasses body. Medium carbonation. Grapefruit, caramel and pine in the aftertaste.
O: Excellent drinkability. Masterpiece IIPA.

My son and I think this could be the best beer we have ever had. Worthy of a purchase.

Clear, mid amber,
Middle body, intense and complex flavor, well rounded and elegant mouthfeel, well placed alcohol heat, lingering palate.
Bittersweet tastes in great balance,
Hoppy, floral, malty.

Ok... Iím all for hops but yeah... It almost stings. Itís extremely bitter for how strong of a beer this is. Normally big beers like this end up a little more balanced but Idk, maybe this is southern tiers war on enamel... Or more likely there in cohoots with dentists because I think I just acid burned a hole in my tooth then got a cavity around the hole...

Little on the sweeter side of IPAs, lemon citrus, hops, wet finish, mild carbonation, nice head but doesnít hold long

Strong start with a complex finish. Lots of stone fruits. Not one of my favorites from southern tier, but solid
